MMBA 6550 - Accounting for Business Management


(3 sem. cr.) Managers do not have to be accountants to effectively lead, but they should understand the impact of their financial decisions. Students are prepared to use the language of accounting and understand the fundamentals of making decisions regarding the financial aspects of a business in this course. They learn to examine financial statements to check the company’s profitability, liquidity, solvency, and return to shareholders. They also learn to use accounting data to make business decisions, such as product pricing, cost cutting, equipment acquisition, and enterprise startup. Students examine accounting in a global context and assess the ways that global business environment impacts financial analysis and decision making. Students employ analytic and group communication skills in a final project through which they conduct research and defend a position on a current accounting topic.
